Editorial Reviews

Scission is the first short story collection from acclaimed Australian writer Tim Winton - whose 1995 novel, The Riders, was shortlisted for the prestigious Man Booker Prize for Fiction.
Wonderfully narrated in tense, gravelly tones by Samuel Johnson, the hardscrabble and often bleak stories collected here are lyrically rich in their gritty depictions of struggle, heartache, and human despair. However, hopeful rays of something resembling sunshine do penetrate the pain at times - making Scission a redemptive listen as well. Fans of Tim Winton should also seek out the similarly gritty works of Mississippi writer, Larry Brown.

Publisher's Summary

Tim Winton's first collection of stories deals with men, women and children whose lives are coming apart and whose hearts are breaking. These spare, jagged stories, in which people struggle with change and disintegration, are vintage Winton.
